    Watch: First Clip From Andrew Niccol's Drone Drama "The Good Kill' Starring Ethan Hawke

    It's a long, long time since Andrew Niccol came up with the goods: the filmmaker broke through in the 1990s as the screenwriter of "The Truman Show" and director of the excellent "Gattaca," but has struggled to return to form, with films like "Lord Of War," "S1mone," "In Time" and "The Host" ranging...

    Venice Review: Andrew Niccol’s ‘Good Kill’ Starring Ethan Hawke, January Jones And Zoe Kravitz

    Shakespeare has received no shortage of contemporary cinematic takes, but we'd reckon there are few that have involved machine guns.
